I have a full 1960's weinmann brakeset (early paramount-type) for sale. They are distinguished mainly by the red metal washers (not plastic bushings) and the chrome pivot bolts that thread onto the aluminum hanger (later models had steel nuts on the back of the caliper.)

Most importantly, i have the genuine weinmann QR hangers that are correct for this era of brakeset. My levers have metal barrel adjusters (don't know if this is correct for an early 1960's schwinn paramount.) There is some rust on these items but it can be taken care of rather easily if you are serious about restoring your paramount. make me an offer... :-) :-)
